blasphemy law that we would now think of as unconstitutional and the last case, the last gallup -- criminal prosecution was in the early 1970's by accident again someone who had a sign in his window that said wanted radical carpenter speaking piece of they thought it was blasphemous and the aclu got involved quickly and the prosecution was dropped. more recently the film company owner tried to name his company i choose hal productions and was denied and corporation under the laws because it was blasphemous. and that eventually was dismissed. >>host: why did it start to change in the air of the 20th century? >> i think especially with the growth of the federal government with the new deal era, the other was the embrace of migration and pluralism that it began to use sees a little bit after the early 20th centuries and the new deal forced so many people on to the move looking for work, having much greater contact with government and the expansion of government power highlighted the friction between a bigger government and the lives of the leaders. there was a lot more attention. >>host: to wr
for americans as surveyed by gallup. what are they spending there time on? well, not the economy, unemployment, dissatisfaction with the government, deficit, or debts, and it's not health care, at six. we are down here to number four to immigration, guns. two of the three issues that matter least americans, at least according to gallup. gun-control and immigration. the senate gang of eight just introduced their immigration proposal. senators voted on seven amendments that would restrict our second amendment rights. every single one of them failed. did i mention, the second amendment prevailed. you have to feel good about that. i have a feeling that the 15 percent approval rating, given what they are doing with priorities and the american people, it's going to a shoot up any day now because of their terrible, terrible hard work and profound interest in what matters most to their constituents. dramatic developments in the texas prosecutor murders. "dobbs law" with the latest. the new accusations that the obama administration is cooking the books on the part station. the recipe for deception. ter
is it not? >> let's start with the question whether or not this is holding back job growth. gallup does a regular poll of business owners and asks them why aren't you hiring? the overwhelming reason is there is not enough customers. there is not demand. it's not obama care, it's not regulations, it's not taxes it's that consumers are tapped out. why are consumers tapped out? one reason is the majority of income gains during the recovery have gone to that top 1%. the middle class doesn't have any money, bill. >> bill: i don't know if that's the fault of the top 1% because the president is in charge of the economy. now, are you ready to hear my evidence? are you ready to hear it? >> go ahead. >> >> bill: do you have an open mind on this? yes? no? maybe? could? >> let me hear what you have got. >> bill: i want you to have an open mind. this is the u.s. chamber of commerce, 2013, this year, small business survey. ready? 77% of small business owners in america say healthcare law will make coverage for their employees more expensive. 77%. 71% say the obama care law makes it harder for them to
over time. there was another poll, gallup organization doing the same poll over time and we know that in the mid-90s if you look when people ask the question do you -- google will legalizing marijuana use. there's a big change in public opinion. part of it is just a change in demographics. we know that younger voters tend to be more supportive of marijuana legalization. those in the last gallup poll, those that are age 18 to 29 were twice as likely to approve of marijuana legalization depending whether they were 65 and older. >> host: edward from memphis tennessee. please go ahead. >> caller: thank you very much. my thoughts are this. do you know marijuana is not the worst thing in the world but it should not be over criminalized. i know from my own experience that the substance wasn't the worst but i knew that if i smoked it i couldn't do my next three days of my job worth a darn. the thing that really worries me is this, if commercialism gets into it who is to say what percentage of thc or whatever is in the content. that will be a whole bag of worms. and i do know this, young
don't seem to like the congressional leadership up there. a new gallup poll finds all four leaders in congress are unpopular. senate republican leader mcmcconnell, 34% have a negative opinion of him. 26% give him thumb's up. he's on the wrong side of history. senate majority leader harry reid 38% negative, 27% positive. house speaker john boehner is up -- he's disliked by 41%, liked by just 31. the least liked leader in congress, unfortunately, i think, is nancy pelosi. the minority leader has a 48% negative rating compared to a 31% positive. it's really no surprise when polls consistently show that favorability of congress as a whole is somewhere around 12%. so they're all leading the pack. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." if there was any question senators who voted against background checks would be held accountable in 2014, new radio ads from gabrielle giffords' gun safety group should erase any doubt. part of the ad they're using against senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, love this one, up for re-election in 2014. >> we watched. >> he fired 154 shots.
they are going to think but the fact is that every gallup poll after gallup poll has established that hillary clinton is the most admired woman in america. that's a whole different thing. and i don't think, quite frankly, that those old scandals matter as much as the internal dynamics of the internal party. >> i want to bring informer president clinton campaign manager james carville. always good to see you. >> thank you. good morning to you. >> so much to talk about. you have already pledged your support to the ready for hillary super pac. so does that mean you think she's the best candidate that the democrats have. >> what about the inevitability that is out there that is potentially her greatest weakness? >> i don't know what she can do about it. we're going to talk about it because she's the most compelling, interesting person and we're going to continue to talk about it and she's not going to make up her mind probably until the midterm. we're going to be siting around here and waiting and there's not much we can do about it and we ought to enjoy it for what it is and it's the best thing
. >>> in a study of 189 u.s. metropolitan areas, the gallup poll has identified the most and the least religious places in the country. the provo-orren area in utah had the highest number of people who said they're very religious, 77%. the lowest number was in burlington and south burlington, vermont, with just 17%. nationwide, 40% of americans said they are very religious. that's our program for now, i'm bob abernathy, you can follow us on twitter and facebook and watch us any time on the pbs app for iphones and ipads. there's much more on our website, you can watch more of our interview about keeping the sabbath and read an excerpt from mary ann's book, "sabbath in the suburbs." audio and video podcasts e als available. join us at pbs.org. >> announcer: major funding for "religion and ethics news weekly" is provided by the lily endowment an indianapolis-based private family foundation dedicated to its founders' interests in religion, community development and education. additionalundinglso prided by mutual of america, designing customized, individual and group retirement products. that's why w
: almost two weeks since the boston bombings a new gallup poll reports half of americans believe a terrorist attack on the united states could be imminent. 40% worry than a family member will be a victim of an attack with the anxiety of another attack still fresh in the minds of many americans, exactly how security might change at major u.s. events is as relevant a question as ever. and while total security cannot be guaranteed especially in large crowds experts say the risk of an attack can certainly be reduced. >> it's all about risk management. >> as the director of the national center for spectator sports safety and security since lou marciani has trained thousands of first responders and universities to increase sports security and awareness. for him, the boston marathon bombings was a lesson learned in preparedness. >> we work so hard in this country. to harden stadiums and arenas so people look at maybe softer targets and if you look at access events like mayor thonsrathons, cycling, et cetera it is hard to maintain a level of security. >> reporter:
of you with the gallup poll that two-thirds of people polled polled, that they would vote against a gasoline tax even if it meant they had to drive on roads that looked even worse than the ones that we see now ended at one to pay for bridges or pot holes. what is your perspective on that attitude about americans when your drivers are using those roads to create jobs and transport products? >> that attitude will not fly. our country was bbilt on the fact we have a superior highway system and it is stretched to the max now and we need funding to repair our highways and bridges and to create additional capacity as well. the trucking industry calls 70 percent of all of the product and 90 percent in terms of value. and there is no way we cannot have a highway system liz: i hope your truckers stays safe and your stock is up 17% over a -- year over year. we will see you next time. 15 minutes before the closing bell preaching closer to amazon earnings after the bell. will this be the quarter that shareholders get a dividend? profession do the smartest people you know, have? look at some
we look at the legs results, it's different, but in terms of the polls between 1996 when gallup started looking at this and 68% of people were against same-sex marriage and 27% were in favor, and in the last couple years, 53% in favor in 2011, 50% in favor in 2012. there's a shift there. the reason we see that is because people increasingly recognize that gays and lesbians are their neighbors, their fellow citizens, so on, and that our relationships are important to us and to our lives. >> and, yet, every time that, so far, we have four elections coming up, and this november on maryland, washington, in minnesota, and in maine, and they have spectrum, and in two states, washington and maryland, the legislature passed gay marriage, and it's now going to the voters to veto it or to affirm the legislature's decision. in minnesota, they are voting on a marriage amendment that marriage is one man and one woman, 30-some odd states passed that similar legislation, and in maine, for the first time, trying to actually pass gay marriage. >> uh-huh. >> it'll be an interesting election. >> i
to compromise. come on, gallup, nice joke. the g.o.p. inflexible? are you kidding me? they came up with the healthcare mandate and cheered when mitt romney did it in massachusetts. but when problem did it president obama proposed it, they proved inflexible enough to oppose it. how can you call a party inflexible to an idea that they were for. they were for it but then refused to fix it when president obama was for it. they were against guns whenned ronald reagan was for it. and then now they're flexible enough to change their position. when it comes to integrity some republicans always have the safety off. and speaking of reagan, he never balanced a budget. he banned torture. he raise the taxes 11 times. he negotiated with our enemies and gave amnesty to illegal immigrants. today's republicans are so double jointed they can despise all of that while still wearing their reagan pajamas to bed every night while their mom rands ayn randreads ayn rand stories. and mitt romney reverse be spandex. there is no more he flexible party than the republican party. they have a way of opening and
about it. >> here's the thing. is he ignoring the real problems facing the country? a new gallup poll shows that the economy remains the top concern for americans. unhappiness with the government second, followed by unemployment and then the federal deficit and debt crisis. gun control, all the way at the bottom of the list. just 4% of those polled say that it is their top concern. >> rutgers university wasting little time firing basketball coach mike rice after the videos of him abusing his players went viral and we all started talking about it. rice breaking his silence after losing his job amid widespread outrage. listen to this. >> there is no explanation for what's on those films because there is no excuse for it. i was wrong. i want to tell everybody who has believed in me that i'm deeply sorry for the pain and the hardship i've caused. >> a little more to that controversy. more than a dozen faculty members are calling for rutgers president to resign. they're upset because he didn't fire rice as soon as the school learned about that abuse. rutgers knew about those videos since t
. but then nearly a third of americans were in favor. now you're seeing this pew poll, gallup polls consistently showing a small majority of americans in favor. so what happened in washington and colorado during the last election is going to happen in other states around the country. in the same way that medical marijuana was legalized through the legislative process in 18 states today, we're going to see that same thing happen with the broader legalization of marijuana. >> let me bring in jeffrey cuban on this. a lot of people make the case on same-sex marriage and attitudes change, and the states started changing as well. there have been a number of of states, i think nine now, that allow same-sex marriage. and yet there is this wisdom out there that drugs are different, that marijuana is different. that this maybe isn't a civil rights issue that other people think it is. do you see this as being apples and oranges? >> there is a parallel but also an important difference. with same-sex marriage, the federal government cannot and does not prohibit states from allowing same-sex marriage. there's
of the century. that's according to a new gallup poll. tonight, correspondent doug mckelway reports some climate change enthusiasts are worried about new climate change data. >> some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science nothing none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and stores. >> since he emphasized combating climate change some mainstream publications have considered climate change heresy reporting that global temperature surfaces have remained flat over the last 10 years. scientist turned activist james hanson also acknowledges the lull. they see this change as a breech in the wall of climate science. >> chief scientists one of the chief scientists kevin trebreath global warming doesn't mean rising temperatures. in other words warming doesn't equal warming. >> this is a highly complex calculation to make in the first place. the short period of time, only 10 years in which the increasing temperature has leveled off, really doesn't tell us very much other than the fact that temperatures may still be rising but just not as fast as they were bef
at a recent poll, a gallup poll regarding congressional approval remaining in a slump. 15% are approving the job that congress is doing which is still a whopping 79% saying guys and gallons, get it together up there, so they have work t to be double play. let's take a look at another big issue, immigration. we'll break it down for a second. susan, the key issues that you think might most likely be agreed upon across the political spectrum. >>> we're getting some progress on the farm worker issue, on those who come here and work in agriculture. i say there's a deal, it looks like, for those folks. i think ultimately, you know, the republican party was out here in hollywood meeting this week which in itself was a big deal. republicans in hollywood? i mean, wow. and the question was well, are you out there just as a symbolic move, or are you actually going to address some of these issues like immigration in a somewhat different way. as you say, art, the jury is still out. if we can make modest progress on guns, if we can get a deal at least as respects to agriculture workers, then maybe, ma
there's a feeling in the press. right? so, gallup just came out with a survey on friday and found that only 4% of americans rate gun control as their top issue right alongside of north korea. what i think is fascinating about this debate is how much is being driven by the white house and that the media is taking their cues from the white house that this is the issue to be focusing on. >> hold on. isn't a lot of it being driven by the emotional aftershocks of what happened in that school in connecticut? >> certainly, howie. absolutely, those families are enormously sympathetic and there is a family member in the newtown victims who was not invited on "60 minutes" last weekend for the very emotional plea because he opposes gun control measures or further gun control measures. >> nia malika henderson, those who want congress to act, they were on the hill and that has given, to me, the press a fresh story line. a very emotional one, as well. >> they were in "people" magazine and "60 minutes." these are amazing and remarkable stories and they're always so moving. so, i think the press
% of the national poll, so i said let me work on that, so i did. i got to 2%. i called again and i said gallup poll has me at 2%. they say well it's 3% now. so another couple of weeks would go by, i'd call. here's what they finally told me. governor, you haven't raised a half a million dollars in the last 30 days. i said well, i've raised $365,000, $100 is the maximum limit for me, and i take no pack money and no super pac. they said our rule now is that you have to raise a half million dollars in 30 days. american politics, unlike 25 years ago has gotten where money is the most important thing. there's nothing wrong with washington that can't be fixed. it's not broken. it's bought. look i'm not a plot and paranoid kind of guy. i like the fact that we have 100 channels to choose from. i like the fact that you have a presence in the media of america and it's not driven by money it's driven by hard work, isn't it? but at the top it's driven by money, and if you were to have a populace candidate like me, who's won a lot of elections when they let him on the stapling, the best way to whip buddy roemer
you. >> john: it's a pleasure to be joined by mr. rick unger. a gallup poll found that two-thirds feel that america should use drone strikes overseas. does this give the president what he needs. >> it might in the short term but this is such a complex problem and people don't see it for what it is. you have got a legal problem that they never established the property legal framework. you've got an international legal problem. we don't have conventions that don't apply and maybe they should. for old school warfare we had rules. there were rules of how you treated civilians, how you treated the sick and injured and we have none of that when it comes to this. and this is a big part of the issue. then you have the p.r. problem. so you've got these multi levels of problems, and to be honest i feel like once they device the technology for this, nobody took the time to see it through. they thought wow what a great way to kill terrorists. it is a great way to kill terrorists. but there are all of these issues that are going to come home to roost and they're starting to. >> john: we have to ack
15 percent of americans in the latest gallup poll approved of congress and the work is doing. but it is the democrats, in my opinion, are botching most things up. let's take the sequester to which hello welcome but the congressman was most animated. it is the secret that the sequester was, despite repeated denials that suddenly could be overcome the fact, those repeated denials fadeaway. and it was, after all, the obama administration's idea after all. they proposed as part of the agreement. in fact, it resolve the debt ceiling spike two years ago. pretty impressive. it was their idea, and now they are upset. they didn't want to admit it. there are almost $17 trillion in debt. well, i mean, just last month president obama said we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. well, that amounts to $16 trillion, and the american people don't agree. a new fox polls shows 40%, 40 percent of those surveyed would describe the nation's debt is a crisis and another 43% say it is a major problem. putting 83% solidly in opposition to the president's view. as the president has been f
of americans are genuinely values the rich for the contribution to american life. there was a gallup poll done last spring which asked whether or not the united states benefited from having a small class of very rich people without adding any more gloss on the question then the words i have given you. 63% of the people who responded fox we were better off for having a small class of very rich people. that alone is evidence. that bubbles around in the same caldron as the rest of these things in the book and i hop you enjoy it and i hope it persuades you and the question will remain what did persuade you of? which has a lot to do, more to do with what you think and what you bring to the books than what i bring. in any case i would be happy to answer any questions you have and look forward to doing so. i would remind you they want you to come to the microphone and ask your questions. don't let that put you off. it is easy to do and not really would welcome your questions. .. >> north of a billion dollars, what percent would fall into the category of good rich in the sense of sharing their wealth?
with abortion. there was a poll done last year by the gallup organization that should that -- showed that this generation is more pro-life and our parents' generation. i was reading a study not too long ago by two professors at georgetown university that was really interesting. pro-abortion, so in favor of legalized abortion, and there were talking about this mysterious case of a disappearing pro-choice generation because they showed that the attitudes of this generation towd abortion in the attitudes of the generation coming up behind us, those in high school and middle school are the most pro-life you'd generations ever. and it will trend throughout their whole life pro-life and don't know where they will find the pro-choice side of the equation. you see, when she was here in washington, the supreme court legalized abortion, they got it wrong. you know, they paid abortion as a woman's rights issue. in attempting to fix what they saw as inequality in the workplace and in a society, what they ended up doing was setting up the active ultimate act of discrimination. the ultimate act of
gallup poll saw half of democrats had a positive view of socialism a better view of socialism that capitalism. there was a pretty good number of non democrats who viewed socialism positively as well. six at the 10 voters supported bigger government and wanted them to do more to solve our problems i say that now that when i was younger with generation x. we didn't ask for much. [laughter] but generation y or whenever they call it i generalized human nature is human nature but there are studies. [laughter] there is a professor at university of new hampshire who measures psychological bubbles of entitlement and narcissism. [laughter] he found last year generation y was 25% higher responding between 40 and 60 when it came to those. they were in the highly entitled range. four times more likely to expect things from government and their parents and their neighbors. that is amazing. now you have young people and the older generation seems far more responsible than those who were demanding saying this. i think he was a liberal reading between the lines that could not believe they had

for 2016. as we look at where this new gallup poll and we have joe biden at 45%. 64% for hillary clinton. hillary is about to start on her highly lucrative speaking tours. what does that say to you as everyone tries to read the crystal ball buiabout where she will fall? >> they watched her as a senator and then as candidate for president and then when she doesn't succeed in that campaign going to work for barack obama, representing the united states all over the world and being a terrific representative, one in whom we can all take pride and they like what they see. i wouldn't say my crystal ball tells me much further than that. it is very reassuring and reaffirming to say the public does reward good work. hillary clinton has been a terrific advocate for the united states. she's brought values around the world. she's been a tough negotiator when that was needed. made a real difference. that's what the public wants to see in our leaders. >> there's a lot of time between now and 2016 and i want to talk to you about jeb bush for 2016. i know you'll be at the dedication of the presidential l

to be in a class all by herself. gallup found her nearly 30 points ahead of a guy named barack obama. times have changed, but maybe not for the better as far as clinton is concerned. assuming she's the democratic nominee, she would be the front-runner, but being the front-runner or establishment pick isn't all that it's cracked up to be. in fact, it may hurt you more than it helps. 2012 saw another giant step forward in the role technology plays. social media means they can get their message out without having to pay for ads and could provide a significant woos to any democratic challenger. joining me now, nick, social media expert. known him a long time. back when he served as internet operations director for howard dean. author of a new book called the end of big, how the internet makes david the new goliath and your book applies to more than just politics. we want to focus on politics here. you've been the lone guy it seems like sayinging hillary clinton's not inevitable. did i sum your argument up fairly? >> you did. good morning, todd, it's great to be here and absolutely. you know, the int
. we saw the largest gender gap ever in the history of gallup polling on these issues. >> do you think state by state, as these things get fought out. we have seen north dakota, arkansas, mississippi, and other states just this year, since the election, push things farther than athey've ever been pushed since roe v. wade. do you feel like we are entering a patchwork area in states where reproductive rights are not protected? >> that's our concern. that your right to safe and legal abortion, your right to birth control, shouldn't depend on your zip code. yet we are seeing the worst bills. one bill that i don't think that many folks are aware of was just signed into law in kansas where literally allows medical practitioners to lie to women about ultrasounds, about other genetic testing, refuse to give them information if it -- you know, that would influence their decision about their pregnancy. this is now signed into law. it goes into effect in july. basically allowing doctors to lie to women in order to influence their decisions about pregnancy. this is the most incredible invasion in
it in the united states. [laughter] [applause] did anyone not see that joke coming? [laughter] only gallup? dick morris? [laughter] speaking of presidents and their legacies, i want to acknowledge a wonderful friend, and steven spielberg and daniel day-lewis who are here tonight. we had a screening of their most recent film "lincoln." extraordinary film. i'm nervous about stephen's next project. i saw a behind-the-scenes look on hbo. let's check it out. roll the tape. >> i was thrilled that lincoln was a success. i was thinking about what to do next. in the middle of the night i woke up and it hit me. obama. why wait? picking the right actor to play obama, that was a challenge. we never got his transcripts. they say he is kind of aloof. i need someone to become barack obama. it turns out the answer was right in front of me all along. daniel day-lewis. [laughter] he nailed it. >> it took a while. hello, ohio. i love you back. let me be clear about that. [laughter] >> once we had daniel to play obama, we had to guess the rest of the team. >> working with a legend mike daniel is intimidating. he ma
it in the united states. did anybody not see that joke coming? only gallup make dick morris. now, speaking of presidents and their legacies i want to acknowledge a wonderful friend, stephen speegven spielberg and daniel day-lewis, who are here tonight. we had a screening of their most recent film "lincoln," which was an extraordinary film. i am a little nervous though about steven's next project. i saw a behind-the-scenes look on hbo. well let's just check it out. roll the dap. >> well i was thrilled that "lincoln" was a success and as i was thinking about what to do next in the middle of night i woke up and it hit me. "obama." i mean the guy's already a lame duck so why wait? picking the right actor to play obama, that was the challenge. who is obama really? we don't know. we never got his transcripts and they say he's kind of aloof. needed someone who could dive in and really become barack obama. and as it turns out, the answer was right in front of me all along. daniel day-lewis. he becomes his characters. hawkeye from last of the me cokens abraham lincoln in "lincoln." y
/3 of voters tell gallup the senate should have passed the bill. whereas pat toomey is seeing sky-high poll numbers after his effort to pass background checks. kelly ayotte, as you said, jeff flake, seeing their numbers hammered after voting no. does this issue feed into the gop branding problem, generally, doesn't it? >> very, very much so. not only are they getting hammered, they're getting hammered in pro-gun states. look at the numbers in arizona, ohio, new hampshire, other places that have traditionally been very, very pro-gun states. those numbers are getting hammered. i thinyont - those senators are getting hammered. your point is the key point, martin. these things take many, many years to pass. the brady bill as you mentioned passed seven years. i think if the politics keep going the way day are going right now, the nra sand castles will quickly blow out to sea and we'll think of nra in a couple years as standing for not relevant anymore. >> okay. this is a very good issue if you are ted cruz. take a listen to how he describes bravely standing up against his own party on gun contro
our base everything that we want. and look, gallup which we all take their polling worth a grain of salt at this point. but they did asked people, what were the things theyliked the most? the two top thing were that they were unwilling to compromise. that was number one by far. they're for the rich of what was interesting, even among republicans, they said their own party was uncome promings. so i think by john boehner already digging in his heels saying absolutely not. absolutely no new revenue. no matter where it comes from. no matter what end of the income spectrum, i think they are playing right into those negative stereo types that people already think about the republican party. >> i think what is interesting, also, is i think with the exception of krystal who mentioned not those reductions, almost everything i've heard is about the politics of chain cpi. and you guys are not alone. i've been scanning the interwebs today. and i found join mccarter in daily coast. she wrote, what the american people will probably remember is that in 2008, candidate obama promise as president
-- this is a gallup poll. what do you think the most important thing facing this country is? the bottom of the list, 4% of americans think gun control is an important issue. the number one issue is the economy. followed right up by jobs. so why is washington spending so much time on guns? i know the president said this week, he was really mad, and he's right, 90% of the people are okay with background checks but that's different than saying, we want gun control. >> yeah, look. i think the important thing in that poll was the question was, what's the most important issue? gun control has never been the most important issue. that couldn't mean it's not an important issue. it doesn't mean congress shouldn't be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. there's a question right now whether they can do either, concentrate on the economy or an issue like this. when you have 90% of people wanting some commonsense solution like background checks and you can't even get that done? it is in fact as the president said it is in fact shameful and they ought to be doing something about it. >> i saw one thing out of
